The Trauma and Injury Intelligence Group (TIIG) North West Event 2017 was held on the 21st of February in the Redmonds Building, Liverpool John Moores University. The event brought together stakeholders and partners from across the region to discuss the role of Emergency Department (ED) data in reducing violence and informing public health interventions. The event provided an excellent opportunity for partners to meet, forge new contacts and share ideas about current and potential applications of ED data.
Simon Russell (TIIG Project Lead) provided an overview and update of the TIIG Project 2016/17, and introduced a range of engaging speakers, including:
- Jane Webster (Public Health Institute) ‘Data completeness and quality in Greater Manchester’
- Andrew Ascroft (Lancashire County Council) ‘Licensing case studies in Lancashire’
- Margaret O’Donnell (Wirral Council) and Joanne Moran (Merseyside Police) ‘Using TIIG data to inform licensing and police work on the Wirral’

- Linda Simms (Lancashire Teaching Hospitals) ‘Achieving robust ED data collection’
- Shahana Ramsden (NHS England) and Belinda Brint (Violence Reduction Nurse South West) ‘Working with Violence Reduction Nurses to implement ISTV; our learning journey’
A total of 50 delegates attended the event representing academic institutions, public health practitioners, local government, the police, hospital trusts, licensing authorities, and national policy makers.
